Back in 2005, we interviewed actor Tom Hanks. Today, we interview his son, actor Colin Hanks. Colin's daughter was born this year, so to keep the streak going, we've got to stay on the air long enough for her to grow up and get her own TV show.

Kim Kardashian is getting a lot of grief for filing for divorce after only 72 days of marriage, but compared with some other celebrity weddings, she and her husband practically grew old together. Hanks will answer three questions about other short-lived celebrity marriages.
